Rasha Jay’s ‘Red Coat’ is the blues based alt-rock single that is a must when soundtracking your weekend

From small town Owings, Maryland Rasha Jay’s music is a storm of blues based alt-rock fueled with emotional vocals, powerful rock instrumentals and atmospheric beats and this is illustrated best in her new single  Red Coat. 

Lyrically the song is about protecting yourself from love and the  heavy bass, strong guitar riffs and raw soulful vocals mirror the dark, murky and conflicted notions that come with the harder side of love. With her forthcoming EP High Dive to be released later this year, Rasha Jay comments that the EP will be a continuation of this exploration into love and the tangled mess of relating to each other –  the title ‘High Dive’ referring to the times when it is best to dive in or jump out and the audience that is always there waiting to see what happens.

Taking influence from musical mavericks such as Prince and rock royalty like Foo Fighters, Rasha Jay creates innovative music that bulges real honesty and daring genre-spanning sounds.

Mama Moonshine ready for haunting new single ‘Sisters’

PrImage

New track available from January 30th 2015

A London based four piece with a love of all things soul, Mama Moonshine are a band tailor made for swaying between funk jams and blues rhythms. This is a group who take in all kinds of influences – from the dusky likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha, to the funk rock stylings of the Black Keys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers – each member has their own unique sound, when moulded together creates a distinct and elevated tone.

Their brand new single ‘Sisters’ is out on January 30th, a heartfelt song about the loss and gain of true friendship. Hauntingly soulful and with smartly lyrics that unspool with a gentle power, the track is a solid example of this band’s class:

Mama Moonshine are clearly a band assured in their own sound, both in the studio and on the stage. Having sold out both The Camden Enterprise and Proud Galleries (Camden Town) they also played to a rapt crowd at the Audiofarm festival 2014, Brunswick in Brighton and Portobello Road, Notting Hill to name a few. Add to that recent radio appearances and a guest slot for vocalist Ruth with Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Band for charity last year, and this band is on the rise in the London Music Scene.

Don’t just take our word for it. There has been interest from cult hit-makers Tune-Yards and Little Dragon, who had some words of encouragement after hearing their new material:

“Had a listen to your music. You have a great voice! Keep writing songs 🙂 and have a blast in the studio!! Lots of luv Yukimi”

‘Sisters’ will be available from online stockists and more from January 30th.
